Association of Leisure-Time Physical Activity With Risk of 26 Types of Cancer in 1.44 Million Adults.
TLDR
Leisure-time physical activity was associated with lower risks of many cancer types, and most of these associations were evident regardless of body size or smoking history, supporting broad generalizability of findings. Expand
Circulating 25-Hydroxy-Vitamin D and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: A Meta-Analysis of Prospective Studies
TLDR
A generally linear, inverse association between circulating 25(OH)-vitamin D ranging from 20 to 60 nmol/L and risk of CVD was demonstrated and remained strong and significant when analyses were limited to studies that excluded participants with baseline CVD and were better controlled for season and confounding. Expand
Dietary Intake of Dairy Products, Calcium, and Vitamin D and the Risk of Hypertension in Middle-Aged and Older Women
TLDR
It is found that intakes of low-fat dairy products, calcium, and vitamin D were each inversely associated with risk of hypertension in middle-aged and older women, suggesting their potential roles in the primary prevention of hypertension and cardiovascular complications. Expand
Flavonoid intake and the risk of cardiovascular disease in women.
TLDR
Flavonoid intake was not strongly associated with a reduced risk of CVD, and the nonsignificant inverse associations for broccoli, apples, and tea with CVD were not mediated by flavonoids and warrant further study. Expand
Systematic Review: Vitamin D and Calcium Supplementation in Prevention of Cardiovascular Events
TLDR
Evidence from limited data suggests that vitamin D supplements at moderate to high doses may reduce CVD risk, whereas calcium supplements seem to have minimal cardiovascular effects. Expand
Associations of Dietary Flavonoids with Risk of Type 2 Diabetes, and Markers of Insulin Resistance and Systemic Inflammation in Women: A Prospective Study and Cross-Sectional Analysis
TLDR
The hypothesis that high intake of flavonols and flavones reduces the development of type 2 diabetes is not supported, although it cannot rule out a modest inverse association with intake of apples and tea. Expand
A prospective study of dietary fiber intake and risk of cardiovascular disease among women.
TLDR
A higher intake of dietary fiber was associated with a lower risk of CVD and MI, although the association was not statistically significant after further adjusting for multiple confounding factors. Expand
Body-mass index and mortality among 1.46 million white adults.
TLDR
In white adults, overweight and obesity (and possibly underweight) are associated with increased all-cause mortality and the hazard ratios for the men were similar. Expand
C-reactive protein and the risk of developing hypertension.
TLDR
C-reactive protein levels are associated with future development of hypertension, which suggests that hypertension is in part an inflammatory disorder. Expand
Physical Activity and Coronary Heart Disease in Men: The Harvard Alumni Health Study
TLDR
The association between physical activity and a reduced risk of CHD also extends to men with multiple coronary risk factors, and totalPhysical activity and vigorous activities showed the strongest reductions in CHD risk. Expand
